SPORT UPDATES

Baseball (@CUTigerBaseball)The Clemson baseball team concludes fall practice with three Orange & Purple Scrimmages this weekend.  Admission is free for all three games.  The first two intrasquad scrimmages (on Friday at 5:00 p.m. and Saturday at 12 noon) will be played at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C., while the series finale will be Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.  All three games will be seven-inning contests.

Men’s Basketball (@ClemsonMBB)The Tigers will hold their only public exhibition prior to the 2013-14 season on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7:00 p.m.  Clemson will host Francis Marion at Littlejohn Coliseum.  The game will be free of charge.

Women’s Basketball (@ClemsonWBB)Basketball season is upon us! After a great #ACCMediaDay in Greensboro last week in which Audra Smith, Nikki Dixon, and Quinyotta Pettaway were excellent ambassadors of the university, the Tigers will open up exhibition play on Tuesday night against Truett McConnell College at 7 p.m. in Littlejohn. They’ll also play Limestone in an exhibition on Sunday at 2 p.m. Admission is free to both events, and the program welcomes your support! Mark your calendar as the season regular opens on Nov. 8 with Davidson coming to town.

Cross Country (@CUTrackandField)The men’s and women’s teams will return to action in Kernersville, N.C. at the ACC Championships this weekend. The men’s 8K competition begins at 10:00 a.m. at Beeson Park, followed by the women’s 6K at 11.

Diving (@ClemsonDiving)The Clemson women’s diving team opened the season on Saturday at McHugh Natatorium. Chelsea Uranaka took first in the three-meter event with a score of 257.35. Megan Helwagen won the one-meter event with a mark of 264.10, just missing a qualifying score of 265 for NCAA Zones. Tiger divers took three of the top five spots in the three-meter and the top six spots in the one-meter. The Tigers will be back in the pool next Saturday when they travel to Davidson, N.C. to take on Davidson and VMI at 1:00 p.m.

Football (@ClemsonFB)Record: 7-1, 5-1 ACCThe Clemson football team ran its record to 7-1 with a 40-27 victory at Maryland Saturday. It was the seventh consecutive victory away from home for the Tigers, the longest streak of its kind in 35 years.

Rod McDowell had a career high 161 yards rushing and two touchdowns, while Sammy Watkins had a school record 14 receptions for 163 yards.  It marked the first time Clemson had a 160-yard receiver and rusher in the same game.

The defense allowed -9 yards of total offense after Clemson’s three turnovers, and allowed just six points after the offensive miscues, a key to the victory.

This week, Clemson is ranked eighth by USA Today and ninth by Associated Press, marking the 10th-consecutive week in the top 10 for the program, tying the 1981 school record for consecutive polls in the top 10.

Clemson heads north again this weekend with a game at Virginia.  It is Clemson’s last scheduled trip to the home of the Cavaliers until at least 2025.

Women’s Golf (@ClemsonWGolf)The Clemson Women’s Golf team wrapped up competition in the Landfall Tradition Sunday with a third-place finish. The tournament, held in Wilmington, N.C., at the Country Club of Landfall, featured 10 teams ranked in the Golfweek Top 25 in the 18-team field.

Ashlan Ramsey finished tied for eighth place individually for the 54 holes with a three -day total of 221. Her second round 69 was one of just three rounds in the 60s by all the players combined over the weekend. She finished in the top 10 of all four fall tournaments.

Sloan Shanahan finished tied for 11th this weekend.  She shot a 75 on Sunday to bring her three-day total to 222. McKenzie Talbert shot the team’s second best round of the tournament on Sunday with a round of 70. She finished tied for 13th with a three-day total of 223.

This was the final fall tournament for the Tigers. With this third place finish, the all freshmen team finished in the top five in all four fall tournaments. The team will be back in action February 14-16 when they will take part in the Seminole Match Up in Tallahassee, Florida.
